As large reinforcements are sent to the west of Euphrates and preparations underway for the demobilization of thousands of Tiger Troops, the Syrian regime’s head issues a decree to fill the forces of its army

The regime forces are still trying to fill in the gap caused by the massive human casualties among their forces and their loyal gunmen, especially those of Syrian nationality, also there are tens of thousands of Syrians have passed their conscription date in the ranks of the regime forces and didn’t enlist yet, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitored Bashar al-Assad, the head of the Syrian regime, issuing a decree providing of “general amnesty for deserters who did not enlist in the conscription service and escaped internally and externally; within the Military Penal Code before the 9th of October 2018, and it does not include those who are hidden of sight; except for those who surrender themselves within 4 months of the date of issuance of the decree for the internal desertion, and 6 months for external desertion,” where this decision has spark doubts among the locals fearing that the regime will not be committed to this decisions, also it has done previously with the guarantees it provided to many of the Syrian areas, and as it did in the release of thousands of kidnapped persons of its supporters and groups working on the Syrian soil.

The Syrian Observatory monitored that this decree came in conjunction with sending substantial and successive military reinforcements by regime’s authorities with their allies of Syrian and non-Syrian nationalities, to their controlled areas west of Euphrates River in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor province in recent days, in order to strengthen their points of presence in the area, which is now witnessing military operations carried out by the organization in the form of attacks targeting sites of the regime forces along the western banks of Euphrates River, from Bokamal until the south of Deir Ezzor city.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has published in recent days that  preparations are underway for the demobilization of some 8000 members of the Russia supported-and-armed Tiger Forces, under the supervision and command of the brigadier general of the regime forces Suhail Al Hassan, the most prominent Syrian military regime leader, who had full Russian support in his military operations during the past months and years, and which caused the recovery of tens of thousands of square kilometers from the provinces of Damascus, Rif Dimashq, Aleppo, Homs, hama, Daraa, Quneitra, Deir Ezzor, and al-Raqqah, which raised regime’s control to more than 61% of the geographical area of Syria, and the Tiger Forces have participated in violent clashes against the rebel and Islamic factions, Hayyaat Tahrir al-Sham, and the “Islamic State” organization in several areas of Syria.

The Syrian Observatory published previously that t the number of the Batch 102 conscripts in the regime forces, who have been kept, and who will be demobilized, reached about 15000 conscripts, of who are expected to be demobilized from the compulsory military service in the ranks of the regime forces, in early June 2018, and the reliable sources confirmed to the SOHR that tens of thousands of the member of this Batch of who were recruited in the conscription service of the regime forces in 2010, were killed and injured, while thousands others dissent from them, during the Syrian revolution, and most of them joined the ranks of the rebel and Islamic factions in the Syrian Opposition, and the Syrian Observatory published at that time that the 102nd batch of those who were recruited in the conscription service of the regime forces in 2010, where they were supposed to be released from service back in early 2012, but the regime forces deliberately kept them on duty for about 6 years of service in addition to their official service time in the army of the regime, using them in the clashes and military operations carried out in the Syrian territory, by which the regime forces managed to regain control of tens of thousands of square kilometers, after previous losing to the opposition and Islamic factions and the “Islamic State” organization.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights published that it rose to about 55000, the number of people who have been recruited since the beginning of April 2018 from the capital Damascus and Rif Dimashq, within the areas which witnessed deals of demographic change through displacing those who refused the agreement which took place between the factions and representatives of the area and between the regime, with full Russian guarantees, in the south of the capital Damascus, and the cities and towns of Eastern Ghouta, the southern Rif Dimashq, Eastern al-Qalamoun, Zabadani, Wadi Barada, Madaya, the west of Rif Dimashq and al-Tal area in Rif Dimashq, and the intersected sources of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights confirmed that the recruitment process had been ordered by the Russian Forces, while fears rise among officers and groups within the regime forces from the Russian forces’ goal of displacement in gaining the side of the remained population within these areas and get closer to them, to make these forces –who are formed from people of the displaced areas– forces loyal to the Russians.
